Change the ownership of one or more files to newgroup . newgroup is either a group ID number or a group name located in /etc/group . You must own the file or be a privileged user to succeed with this command.



Change the group on symbolic links. Normally, chgrp acts on the file referenced by a symbolic link, not on the link itself.


Recursively descend through the directory, including subdirectories and symbolic links, setting the specified group ID as it proceeds.
